Step 3 – Arrange your Service
Once you have been allocated funding we can then help you take the next steps to arrange your services with Co.As.It.
Commonwealth Home Support Programme (CHSP)
If you have allocated funding via CHSP, services can commence within a couple of months. Our friendly team will assist you to create a care plan that is tailored to your needs and goals. Once you are happy with your quote, it is time to accept the agreement.
Home Care Package (HCP)
If you have been allocated funding via HCP, services can take between 6 months to a year. You will be placed on a national waitlist and notified when your package becomes available to you. In the meantime, we can organise any necessary support services for you with private funding.
Three months prior to receiving access to your package, you will get a ‘Readiness letter’ from My Aged Care. This is an important letter as it will contain some paperwork you will need to complete. Call us when you get this letter and we can help you complete the paperwork. At this time we can also start planning your support, so you are ready to receive services when your package becomes available.
Once your Home Care Package becomes available, you will receive a letter confirming the details of the package assigned to you. Contact us when you get this letter. Our friendly team will assist you to create a care plan that is tailored to your needs and goals. Once you are happy with your quote, it is time to accept the agreement.
